Wine with Pisi Linux works not, here the Solution for it   Leave a comment

You use Pisi Linux and you will use Wine (short for Wine Is Not an Emulator) with Windows Software but it detects not your Software and you become an Error about a 32bit Problem?

What is Wine?

Wine (short for Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a free and open source compatibility layer software application that aims to allow applications designed for Microsoft Windows to run on Unix-like operating systems. Wine also provides a software library, known as Winelib, against which developers can compile Windows applications to help port them to Unix-like systems.

It duplicates functions of Windows by providing alternative implementations of the DLLs that Windows programs call, and a process to substitute for the Windows NT kernel. This method of duplication differs from other methods that might also be considered emulation, where Windows programs run in a virtual machine. Wine is predominantly written using black-box testing reverse-engineering, to avoid copyright issues.

The name Wine initially was an acronym for Windows emulator. Its meaning later shifted to the recursive backronym, Wine is not an emulator in order to differentiate the software from CPU emulators. While the name sometimes appears in the forms WINE and wine, the project developers have agreed to standardize on the form Wine.

The phrase „wine is not an emulator“ is a reference to the fact that no processor code execution emulation occurs when running a Windows application under Wine. „Emulation“ usually refers to the execution of compiled code intended for one processor (such as x86) by interpreting/recompiling software running on a different processor (such as PowerPC). Such emulation is almost always much slower than execution of the same code by the processor for which the code was compiled. In Wine, the Windows application’s compiled x86 code runs at full native speed on the computer’s x86 processor, just as it does when running under Windows. Windows system services are also supplied by Wine, in the form of wineserver.

But now to the Problem!

You can not install your Software, or your Software runs not, no Problem.

Since a while i had the same Problem, and found a simple Solution for it.

Go to your Home Folder and make hidden Files visible, Open Dolphin >Menubar>View>Show Hidden Files.

You found a lot of more Folders with a point or dot at the beginning scroll down and you found two Folders named .wine and .wine32


 

Rename the .wine32 folder( delete the point or dot or name it .1wine32 so that Wine could not find the Folder as example here an Image:

Now install your Software again and you will see it works and your what ever runs with Wine.
Note this is not alone a Pisi Linux Problem, i had the same Problem with Kubuntu, and there i have solved it so and have done the same in Pisi Linux.
Look at the example Images, that have i installed to let you see how good Wine in Pisi Linux works.

Important: The Wine Version 1.7.35 works in my Developer version from Pisi Linux

but this Solution works for the Wine Version 1.7.32 too.
